What’s your preferred method of stripping the shell from a hard boiled egg? Because I just lost thirty minutes of my very important life, hunched over the garbage can with two dyed Easter eggs squealing under my grip.

By the time I finished, half of each egg came off with the shell, I have cuts under my nails, and my kitchen looks like a crime scene.
Also, there were tiny specks of shell hiding in my egg salad.

This is what the internet suggests:
Crack the shell at each end by firmly tapping the egg onto a hard surface such as a counter. Do one end, and then the other. There is an air bubble in the wide end of the egg; you want to crush this. Place the side of the egg on a counter and roll forward for one revolution with your palm firmly down on the top of the egg. Submerge the egg in a bowl of warm water and slip the entire shell off in less than a second.
But the internet is basically a pervert’s playground run by nerds, so who knows.
I wonder if there’s a machine that will do it for me. I mean, other than the Henry1965.
I just tap the bigger end onto the counter or a plate. There’s an air bubble there it should smash pretty nicely. Then I just peel from there. If the shell is sticking to the egg too much, apparently your eggs were too fresh, I read that somewhere. I don’t know if they mean fresh as in, fresh from the hen, or fresh like you didn’t wait long enough after hard boiling them. So maybe the longer they sit after you boil them, the easier it will be.
I always have the problem on Easter that I put my egg on top of my ham or holobci and it gets wet and the dye runs so I get it all over my fingers. =( This year I remembered that and wiped it off with a napkin first. =P
Oh and once the shell is cracked I lift the pieces off with the edge of the pad of my thumb, not with my fingernails. I imagine egg shells under the fingernails would be pretty painful. =(
Egg shells are the new bamboo shoots!
I just bang different parts on the counter a few times then roll it around under my palm enough to crack the shell but not hard enough to smash the egg.
Then just rub it all off over the garbage can and wa-la!
You make it sound easy! Tomorrow I’ll try again. I’m going to make a special uniform first. An egg-peeling overcoat with elbow pads.
I learned this tip from my mom: When you boil the eggs run them under under cold water until they’re cool to touch. This, for some reason, keeps them from sticking to the shell when you peel them. It really does work! The last time I put them straight in the fridge without cooling them first I couldn’t peel them to save my life.
GOOD, I can totally blame this on Henry then!
Thank you for the tip!!
i smash the damn thing against my head- peel it off as best i can, then rinse the tiny pieces off with water.
I haven’t tried this, but it sounds pretty cool
DUDE. I need to try this asap. THANK YOU for sharing! I’ll watch the video when I get home tonight because YouTube is blocked here at work.
oh and here’s the visual aid… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rch4d9g3ZA4
